Maybe your amp is humming as well. Try lifting the ground (earth). :)

As Dean said. Make sure every metal interior part is earthed either on the pot, or the earth paint usually on the wood. Make sure nothing isnt earthed otherwise you will get that buzzing. If your using patches, check if you can turn the NR (Noise Reduction) up. Message back with news!

It Turned Out to be a Too many Plugs in the Socket and my computer
Screen!?
A Friend (A Guitarist..Unlike I, "A Singer Who Plays a Guitar"..His Words!)
Informed me that I Had too Many plugs Running off an extension socket and that Computers Screens Interupt Something or other...Blah Blah..
Ever heard Of This?
Anyways Turned Off Computer..unplugged Some plugs Fine!
He Told me To Walk Around the Room with guitar Plug in to Notice the Difference...There Was!
Apparently it happens with single Coils..but a Dummy Coil can be Bought to Counteract this?
I don't know
No Earthing Problems..only my connection with Earth..Possibly!

SOUNDS LIKE BAD GROUND TO ME IT'S
A BAD SOLDER JOINT AT THE INPUT JACK OR AT POT IT'S SOLDER TOO.
OR IT COULD BE A BAD GUITAR CORD.

I have 2 les pauls although one is a copy! the other a Gibson I find the uncomfortable, heavy and I don't like the neck!
I have 17 Guitars.. 12 of which I haven't even picked up for 6 months!
Although Some aren't that good!..
In Fact I might sell some... Starting with a White Sg junior type Like Jakes!

Oooooo, I would be interested in the junior. I have 1 already, but always on the lookout for more gibsons for the collection, and a white one like Jakes would go nice...let me know if u r serious. :) What year etc etc??

It sounds Ok..the pickup isn't Explosive..it has a very bluesy sound..I intended on putting in a P90..I asked Bengal at one piont what head has in his SG..but I never got round changing it!
It Plays Good it's a set neck..the action is not too bad..I find those
tailpieces hard to set up!
Yes, It's a Shame about those block inlays..but at the time just I saw Jake Junior And Bought it!

It sounds like you got off the ground problem.
Far as Gibson guitars and marshall amps go I think they cost too much and over rated. That will not fix the problem just cost you more money.
Don't get me wrong but they both are good but they have problems too .
